Hey guys & gals,
I finally bit the bullet and got a smoker after years of whining about how no one in my family could get the Q right. I'm currently using an el cheapo off brand electric that my wife bought for me on my b-day. Don't tell her, but I really hate the damn thing. Can't control the temp and it cooks WAY too hot! But I'm sure you all already knew that. So when she isn't looking I just impregnate the base with charcoal and wood take the element out. (sshhhh)

To date I have been relatively successful with my dry-rub spare ribs, salmon and a brisket. The brisket wasn't done to the 3-2-1 method, but I have since learned my lesson. Next challenge is the duckling and turkey breast. Wish me luck. I have the apple cider brine waiting in the wings.

If anyone needs help with anything related to beer (pairings, branching out, etc.) let me know. I'm a proud delegate for the United Nations of Beer (UNOB). Happy smoking!

FYI- after I start getting the hang of this, cold smoking will be my next endeavor.

Welcome to the SMF Doozer, You will find all the info you need in here.

I think you meant 3-2-1 for ribs not brisket.....wright?

Welcome. Nice to have you. Sounds like you already have some experience, but cruising through the free 5 Day eCourse will give you quite a bit of good information. You might take a look at it.

Good Luck and Have Fun
